  • 34. The Wonderful World of Acne
    • To better find an effective acne product, one must have a basic understanding of acne itself (its causes, cycles, factors, etc.)
    • You must also know your skin type
  • 35. Causes
    • Clogging of the sebaceous glands
    • Hormones stimulate sebaceous glands (especially during puberty)
    • Anti-epileptic drugs mess up endocrine secretions
    • Heredity
    • Diet is not a factor (especially chocolate)
  • 36. Cycles
    • When skin is too dry (from washing or other products), the glands produce oil to compensate for the loss of moisture. Too much of this oil, especially if dead skin cells are present, can clog pores and cause acne.
    • Squeezing or “popping zits” can make your condition worse or make them come back.
  • 37. 2 Common Acne Products
    • Salicylic Acid-usually found in liquid cleansers and have an orangey color
    • Especially good for treating blackheads (the black spot is not dirt, it’s dead skin cells mixed with oil and sebum)
    • Washing twice daily with salicylic acid and warm water will temporarily remove debris and dry up excessive oil
    • Easy to find and pretty inexpensive
  • 38. Acne Products, cont.
    • Benzoyl Peroxide-white in color and usually found in creams or cream cleansers
    • Easy to find and inexpensive
    • Excellent at drying up oil and cell turnover, but doesn’t really lift debris
    • Can dry face out too much (5% and 10%)
    • Bleaches your skin, but it can also bleach your hair, clothes, and towels.
  • 39. Other Remedies
    • Pore strips can help lift debris, but adhesive is usually left behind on the skin causing irritation or clogging of pores
    • Witch Hazel contains alcohol which is excellent in drying skin, but can be too strong
    • Masque/clay treatments can dry oil and lift debris, but some ingredients can cause irritation
    • Prescription drugs can be prescribed (antibiotics, cleansers, creams, gels, Ortho-Tri-Cyclen, etc.)
    • Visine constricts blood vessels
  • 40. Remedies, cont.
    • Wash face twice daily with warm water
    • Shampoo hair regularly if not daily
    • Use water-based cosmetics
    • Refrain from touching face

  • 48. 2 Alternatives to Plastic Surgery
    • Botox Treatments
    • Collagen Enhancements
  • 49. Botox
    • Botox is a non-surgical procedure that temporarily reduces the intensity of wrinkles by injecting bovine protein into the muscles.
    • Muscles around the eyes contract from facial expressions and after time remain contracted.
    • Botox blocks the nerve impulses which make the muscle contract so the muscle relaxes and eases the wrinkles
